Yet another day, yet another acquisition rumor. The slow unimpressive sale of WebOS devices is not news anymore and Palm is known to be taking a few steps in order to position their handsets better in the market.
However, we now hear that popular computer hardware maker Lenovo may be interested in acquiring the smartphone manufacturer to expand its penetration in the smartphone market. While nothing is confirmed, Lenovo could be expected to either use the Palm brandname to extend their reach or may simply use the resources at Palm to further their own interests.
Eitherways, be forewarned that this is just a speculation and needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

What do you do when your laptop is stolen? How do you protect all the sensitive information stored in the laptop? Lenovo has just developed a technology that will enable the rightful owners to not only disable their laptops but can also get a list of all information that was accessed prior to the disabling so that one might know what all information was compromised.
In a recently filed patent, the inventors at Lenovo write
“Portable computers may be provided with a mechanism to disable the computer if the rightful owner has lost the computer or suspects it of being stolen, to prevent access to potentially sensitive information on the computer.
A method includes receiving a disable command at a computer and in response to the disable command, transmitting information indicating accessed data. After transmission of the information, the computer disables itself.”
The inventors also go a step further to let users set a specific benchmark time. So, if this time is set to 1 hour, all information that was accessed in the earlier one hour shall be gathered and transmitted before the system goes on disable mode. The technology is believed to work using GPS.
